Re: Hurst Descendants Part II
In Response To: Re: Hurst Descendants Part II ()

Hi Greg,

It seems we are distant cousins ;-) Your ancestor, William Barker Hurst, would be my first cousin five times removed, I believe. I donít have much personal information about the Russellville Hursts, and I have never heard of a link to the James Gang. If this is true it would be ironic, in another branch of my family tree I have a great-something uncle who rode with them.

Back to the Hursts, I do have Jessie Anna listed as Wm Barker's child on my Familytree program. Here is what I have for William Barker Hurst:
